Question about 2006 Hyundai Elantra

1 Answer

Car won't start.

Won't start. It's been in an accident. Seems like there is no fuel pumping. When I turn key and press gas pedal nothing happens, only starter works... I heard about some kind of a button that resets after an accident and does not allow the fuel to be pumped into an engine. Do you guys know anything about it? thanks

It sounds like you have to push your fuel cut off switch, the switch could under your hood or in by the dash somewhere.have a look at your owners manual it will be in there or you can ask your local dealer where the fuel cut switch is on your car.

Tracer not starting quickly

How about checking fuel pump operation? You may be due for a replacement. Check for fluctuating pressure and listen for unusual fuel pump noise.

Car won;t start after fillig up the gas task

It might be your fuel pump, if you turn your key to the setting right before your car turns on and you hear nothing, it maybe your fuel pump, if you do hear a buzz then try replacing your fuel filter before it strains your fuel pump

My 2004 cavalier will not turn over without excessive pumping of the gas pedal. Battery, starter and everything else seems to be fine. Is it the pump or something else?

Try this next time you start it. Turn the key to the run position, do not start the engine. Wait 3-5 seconds and turn the key off. Turn the key right back to the on position and wait for 3-5 seconds. Turn the key off. Repeat the above one more time. Now try to start. If it starts right up you have a fuel supply problem. Either the fuel pump is bleeding off or the fuel pressure regulator is leaking. Pumping the pedal is doing nothing besides buying time for the fuel system to pressurize. Post an engine size and I'll help you locate the fuel pressure regulator. Let me know if you have any questions and I'll do my best to answer them. Thank you for using!

Truck won't start but turns over. Gave the fuel tank two whacks with a hammer and it started right up. Do I need a new fuel pump? This is the second time this has happened, but four months in...

it might be the fuel pump, have someone turn the key on but not start it while you're under the gas tank and listen for the pump to pressurize, if you don't hear anything, you'll need a new fuel pump for sure, but the whacking it with a hammer is most likely a sign that some of the windings in the pump have gone bad.

My car won `t start sometimes an then it works again after a couple of hours

there can be a few things wrong.
1. do you press the gas pedal at all before you start? because that floods the engine
2. a clogged fuel filter can cause that to happen, it wont start the first few times you try it then it will after wards.
3. your fuel pump could be on its way out.
4. you might have starter problems

thats pretty much in order from cheapest (first one doesn't cost anything at all, just dont press the gas pedal) to most expensive
get it checked out, they wil know better when they see it and they'll be able to run some diagnostics

Hesitates start an when i stop it cuts off

you should not have to work the gas pedal to start this car. It has an electric fuel pump. When you turn the key on to start it can you hear a "whirring" sound coming from the back of the car? Get your fuel pump checked.

My car has had a few problems lately, can you help

I have the same problem with not starting. I have noticed that if I go easy on the gas pedal right before I pull into the parking space or the last 20-30 seconds before I shut off the engine, it will "cooperate" much better when I start next time. Also fillip up on Shell V-Power premium twice in a row on long trips seems to solve the problem for a few days; have no idea why!

2006 Nissan Sentra Special Edition Start Up Problem

Odd that the owner manual mentions the issue - seems that they are aware of it. Given that car is most likely fuel injected it's generally bad to pump the gas pedal as this floods a fuel injected vehicle (works for older carburated vehicles) I'm assuming you are just barely putting pressure on the pedal. This may be as simple as an idle adjust at the throttle body or it may require programming by the dealer. I'd search and see if there is a recall for this. This may be an issue the dealer is obligated to fix at no cost since it's listed in the manual...
